Friends or Foes?

The Germans and the French

Few relationships between two nations have been so fraught with tension, so complex as that of the French and the Germans. In the last 200 years alone, they have waged five brutal wars against each other. For a long time, the deep-rooted hostility appeared to be insurmountable. But what is behind this troubled relationship? Are we really so different? Are we friends or foes? What unites us? What divides us?
